Les Paul R-6 Goldtop
I purchased this 2012 R-6, just this past week in March 2013. I am fortunate to own and have owned many great guitars and currently a Gibson 60 Reissue 335, Es 165, Martins and Fender and a Rick Kelly Tele. This Goldtop is all it should be and is quickly a favorite. The feel of the neck is perfect. It is a fat neck. The fret wire is the flatter fret wire of the 50's and actually a joy to have for a change. The sound is all it should be with the P-90 and the look-well matched with a gold top...wow! Weight is 9 lbs and this is comfortable for a Les Paul. The specs are spot on and although the 2013 have some more upgrades, this is more than excellent. I like the lighter back as in this year , as the 2013 are darker and a little greener in the gold. I dealt with Marcos Sanchez who was very professional and service orientated. This is one reason I purchased from Sweetwater. All in all, this has to be a favorite of any guitar and a total blues rock or jazz monster.
